Enterprise Software Pioneer IFS Joins the OpenAPI Initiative

By October 8, 2019November 4th, 2020Blog

OpenAPI Initiative is pleased to welcome IFS as a new OpenAPI member! IFS develops and delivers enterprise software for customers around the world who manufacture and distribute goods, build and maintain assets, and manage service-focused operations.  This includes service management, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM). The company’s flagship product is IFS Applications which it develops, supplies, and implements both directly and through a global ecosystem of over 400 partners. Founded in 1983, IFS employs over 3,700 people supporting more than 10,000 customers around the world and has projected revenues to be over $700 million in 2019.

“IFS is pleased to join the OpenAPI Initiative. Supporting open source development and governance of the OpenAPI Spec, a vendor neutral description format, will benefit IFS customers by making it easier for them to integrate our software into their business and IT landscape, and enabling them to extend the solution on the ‘outside’ as an alternative to using more intrusive customizations,” said Dan Matthews, IFS Chief Technology Officer. “Come ask our development and support teams how working with the OpenAPI Specification can help your IFS implementation.”

IFS and OpenAPI

IFS supports the OpenAPI Spec (OAS) v3 and has been working with OAS and its predecessor the Swagger Spec for some time. IFS Applications is fully API enabled, with more than 10,000 native RESTFul OData APIs covering the full breadth of functionality. OpenAPI Specs are available for all APIs.
